From the Stew Leonards.com site. Stews is a great East Coast dairy store that sells the freshest of everything. They have a revolving recipe link on their site and my friend swears by every recipe she's ever tried off of the site. So I think I'll give this one a crack as a New Years Eve appetizer. (Adjust wine and other ingredients to suit your taste)
